"Hi Nick, just wanted to let you know we had a wonderful time at the lake house, our family made some wonderful, unforgettable memories. The house is great for a large family it is so spacious that no one got in anyone's way. Access to the lake is amazing, the water is so clean and clear. Our husband's and kids love to fish and they caught fish everyday even off the dock. We loved how open the main level was and we could all sit and eat together in the kitchen. Althou the kitchen could use a bit of updating like some new cookie sheets and baking pans because if you wanted to bake anything the pans there are not really good they were rusted. You definitely could use a new set of knifes there are no sharp one's. Also the water pressure in the kitchen sink was not good but if you used the sprayer the water pressure in that was good hmm didn't make sense. The upstairs master bedroom was ok but the bathroom needs better lighting and in the shower the water pools to one side which is not very sanitary it seems that the shower is unlevel, you should have at least a squeegee to push the water in the drain. It would have been nice to have a tv in the 2nd master bedroom also seeing they are really in expensive today a 40" tv @ walmart is less than $300.00 not that we were there to watch tv but when you go to bed you can watch a little tv and unwind before you go to sleep. I must say you had all the outside and inside games anyone could ask for. Our kids loved the pool table and ping pong table but the ping pong table & paddle's were in bad shape. I hope you fixed the air conditioning thank goodness it wasn't really hot and we did bring our fans with us. One more thing seeing you do not provide any wood for the fire pit you should at least no someone who would sell a face cord of wood that we could have called. We did the leg work and found a guy who delivered a face cord of wood for $70.00 which I would have paid you if you provided it. With all this said we still had a blast and I would rent from you again now knowing what I would need to bring thank you again for letting us make beautiful family memories that we will cherish forever. Thanks Again for sharing your lake house with us. Kim"

"What a wonderful house to Rent!! This was the first time that me and my family visited Skaneateles Lake and it exceeded all of our expectations. The lake is a gem to say the least, and the water is crystal clear and refreshing. The huge plus about this house is that it is situated directly on the lake with a large beautiful deck and very easy lake access. We enjoyed using the grill and dinning with views of the lake during sunset. Spending time boating in the house's very nice large canoe and single person kayak was very enjoyable. There is a swimming platform just off the house which was very pleasant to swim to and jump off of, and the house has lots of floats to use too. I'm a fisherman and was very successful fishing off the dock and from the canoe catching small mouth bass. We also rented a party boat at the Skaneateles Marina which was a very good deal and half price on Monday's or Tuesdays. It's a great way to see a lot of the lake and beautiful homes surrounding it. The house is very comfortable with a nice kitchen that had everything you need to cook with. The living room is large with a TV that has all the cable channels, but we rarely used it because the lake provided so much entertainment. The beds and bedrooms were very comfortable also. Then there is the town. Skaneateles is a treasure with many great restaurants to choose from and surrounding wineries to visit and do tastings at. Don't miss Anyela's Vineyard, that is just a few miles down the road from the house. We also took a day trip to Niagara Falls which was a little under 3 hours away and very doable from the house. It was incredible to see!
If you want to experience a Fingerlake at it's best, Skaneateles Lake and this house is it! We had the best week ever!!"

"I stayed at this beautiful home with my husband and our 3 young children: ages 7, 4 and 2. The house is well set-up for a family. It is newer construction and set-up like a 3 bedroom apartment. There are 3 good sized bedrooms, one with a trundle bed (very comfortable), one with a bunk bed (double on the bottom and twin on top), and the master bedroom has an on suite bath, large closet and lake views. The Kitchen is open to the dining area and living room- so this is great for entertaining, and for keeping any eye on little kids. The kitchen is well stocked with any utensil, dish or cooking pan you could need. It is nice that the owners are on the other side of the home so if you need anything they respond promptly. Outside: you can drive right to the home. There is nice decking that provides functional outdoor space. The dock on the water has damage from the winter, which is being fixed- so that is not as functional at this time, but I am sure it will be fixed and be functional in the future.- The waterfront is good for boating and fishing. It is good swimming for older children, but not young child friendly. We really enjoyed the hiking trails that are right down the road from the home. we went on nightly hikes and my kids loved catching salamanders in the brook. This house is an ideal set-up and the kids were happy...so the parents were happy... and that is a good vacation in my book."

Fantastic lake house, great for kids and relaxing.
"I've been visiting Skaneateles for many years and have stayed in most of the hotels and a number of houses. I must say that this was the best experience we have have had. We bought my 15 year old son, his 3 friends and my 18 year old daughter. The boys had an amazing time, hanging on the beach, fishing off the dock or playing ping pong in the basement. We also bought up our ski boat and moored it right off the dock. The house is setup nicely with the loft for the boys to sleep and separate bedrooms for the others. We would sit on the back deck and have coffee in the morning and watch the sun over the lake. The deck was so relaxing for everyone! The property was very clean and have everything that you needed. I had to contact the owner a few times to coordinate arrivals and he responded immediately. I would strongly recommend this house for anyone that wants a relaxing and fun vacation!"
